General

  • Small family-friendly site in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons
  • Just off the main A470 road, a five-minute drive from Brecon town
  • Views out across the mountains; pygmy goats to meet at the park

Get to Glangwdi Glamping for bell tent breaks at a fantastic family-run site in a first-rate spot for bumbling around the Brecon Beacons National Park. Days of hiking, alpaca walking, mountain biking, horse riding, canoeing, gorge walking – and pretty much any other activity you're up for in this part of Powys – are a doddle to organise while on a hol here.

Taking on pursuits of a more leisurely sort is also an option at this scenic site, either by simply sitting down and admiring the views out across south Wales’ most sizeable mountain range or by wandering over to meet the pygmy goats, chickens and ducks at the farm.

Barbecues with a backdrop of the Brecon Beacons are of course a brilliant way to arrange dins on site (firepits are available and there’s wood to buy). But if you're not in the mood to cook, let someone else do the work by ordering meals at one of the pubs, coffee shops or restaurants up the road in Brecon (five minutes’ drive). You could also wangle a takeaway delivered straight to your pitch...

Work up an appetite for eats with a walk around the Brecon Beacons, whether a gentle hike in the woods or while getting stuck into scaling Pen-y-Fan (20 minutes), the area’s highest peak.

This is a back to basics type of park but it does have portaloos, showers and a washing-up area.

    The Glamping site is in a very convenient location, close to all the locals amenities. The tent ⛺️ was surprisingly spacious inside and the beddings provided was top-notch! We didn’t really had to use our blankets despite the miserable weather ☔️
    Will definitely miss waking up with a cup of coffee and the spectacular view of Pen-Y-Fan.
    Looking forward to visiting again with bigger groups in near future! 😁

    EVERYTHING. Such a lovely place to stay, all set up perfectly and loads of baby animals to pet as an added bonus! Hosts were absolutely lovely too!
    There’s fairy lights around the middle pole of the tent which can be turned on and used as a light after sun set - we didn’t realise this on our first night and were kicking ourselves when we realised the next day 🥴

    Loved my stay at Glangwdi, easy to get into Brecon and 10 mins from Pen-y-Fan. The host was extremely nice, letting me use her electric to charge my phone whilst I went out for food. Which was very helpful as a solo traveller needing my phone the next day.
    The tent was beautiful and designed very well with a very comfy permanent bed (not the airbed).

    Disliked: 

    The toilets and showers were fine to use as I was there for only one night but can imagine not ideal for several nights. However, she stated the toilet and showers were temps as it is a new campsite but I can imagine it would be amazing once they invest in permanent features.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Horse-riding sorts might like to saddle up at the nearby stables (10 minutes' drive), while mountain bikers can satiate their need for speed on the top trails at BikePark Wales (half an hour).

And the outdoorsy antics don't end there… Brecon is something of a hub for such things with activity centres around town for rafting, canoeing, high ropes courses and gorge scrambling adventures. All sound too exhausting? Take a more leisurely ride on the Brecon Mountain Railway (half an hour) before heading home via the Penderyn whisky distillery (30 minutes) and sampling some locally made tipples.

Break out of the Beacons for trips to some of the area's other attractions: Llandovery Castle is half an hour away, as is the literary town of Hay-on-Wye, a settlement lined with bookshops. A little further north, but well worth a trip are the lakes of the Elan Valley and the Red Kite Feeding Station in Rhayader; both are around 50 minutes drive.

Must see

  • Brecon Mountain Railway (16.1 kilometres)
  • Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre (20.7 kilometres)
